Better add a naked Frodo, never know if you'll need an extra for your "porn" collection. :p

I don't usually do midget porn, but I do know that when I do I only like 1 on 1.

Dang-it....

Missed out on the Frodo coats!

Funny -- I got a bunch of loose Pirates gear from this guy on ebay awhile back, had no idea he was Kozin on SSF until now.

I was able to snag some needed stuff, including a Frodo coat. Kozin is good people. I've known him for a long time from several other forums.

Just got an email from John. He's out of the coats. Oh well...

Got to work this morning and see John sent me an email confirming a coat for me!

Just to make sure, thats the only duplicate item needed for Merry and Pippin? Everything else can be found from just 1 Frodo and 1 Sam?

Thanks again Marc!

Drat, didn't get a coat. That's all I think I need.

The coat is needed for "Bilbo", if one is updating the Toy Biz one as well.

I like Bilbo but I think I'm going to hold out a few years and get a The Hobbit version.

Oh I'll get Bilbo but right now I want to make sure I have all my I's dotted and T's crossed with everyone else first.

If you hold your breath, you'll pass out. I seriously doubt Sideshow will be returning to ANY 12" Hobbit/LOTR figures regardless of the new film and/or renewed interest. It's nothing more than a pipedream we've chased here to the land of custom Hobbitdom.

Maybe not SSC, but possibly somebody. I think with the new films it will be too good to pass up (that is if it goes to a company that historically has capitalized on film releases more timely).

I would surprised if we didn't see some 1:6 loving for The Hobbit.

Speaking of the Hobbit, why is the ToyBiz Bilbo so expensive?:google He's going for close to $40 on the bay.

Yeah you can thank our little group for the inflation.

When I bought mine he could be had everywhere for between $8 - 15. (I got mine for $8 :o)

Most probably a Toybiz version... :horror

(Though by then, we'll be pros in getting them up to snuff... ;) )

I figured it was because of you guys. Well, between Bilbo and roto Gimli I'll have to come up with an extra $80. Yikes...:google

The Josh

Gimli cost me $25 and then shipping was llike $10 bucks. Haven't looked for Bilbo yet. If I get him I'll have to go looking for a Frodo Coat but I'll wait till I have a coat secured. Unless the Bilbo head fits on the Frodo body easy enough.

I think with Gimli I'm just going to figure out a way to bring the Toy Biz version up to par without buying the other 2.

The Josh

All I did was buy the TB Gimli and send it to Josh.

Yeah, good luck with that. That's what I thought back when everybody was content using him and/or the DiD. :monkey2 That's what initially forced me to take the step and attempt the DiD body mod in the first place which led us, to where we are now. But if you're going to blame someone, blame Pix! :lol

I think I'm gonna try to butcher a Buck that I already have and see if I can get the TB gloves and boots to it.

To be honest, the Toybiz (soft) version is not shabby by itself. It was my stand-in Gimli since the release of SS's Aragorn and I would have been content with it. But the trap is that each one of the Gimli's provides something that is better than the others and thus you are quickly sliding down that upgrading slope.

Don't you mean sliding "up"? :lol

ToyBiz's Gimli is shorter than Sideshow's Hobbits. That's the main reasons he couldn't work for me.
